Inflorescence …

Fading poppy

A poppy fades,
a vibrant glory passes;
dulled petals
of impermanence displayed,
I see them
fall among the grasses ..
next year,
a bright flower
will open its secret heart
in an offering
to the sun:
the faded poppy’s
memory burnished
in aeternum … .

Opening poppy

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
